About the Album

As a follow up to his Grammy-nominated "Convergence Zone," Phil Kelly brings together many of his friends from his days in Los Angeles for a hard-swinging look at his arrangements of standards such as "Jeannine," "Body & Soul," and Ellington's "Daydream," and originals including the haunting and lush title cut, "My Museum" featuring the vocals of Greta Matassa. Propelled by the drumming of Steve Houghton and lead players like Wayne Bergeron, Lanny Morgan, Andy Martin and Pete Christlieb, Kelly's crisp, modern take on the Big Band will inspire all lovers of the genre.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
